GaNaDaRa is quite new in town but it is already one of my favorites Korean restaurants in Montreal. Their food is well made and most of the items in the menu are $5-7. That’s a killer combination. Not surprisingly, this nice little eatery became my top destination whenever I’m in downtown.
GaNaDaRa is definitely the cutest restaurant I’ve seen lately. The atmosphere is cozy and unpretentious: KPop music playing, friendly staff and cute decals on the wall! Love it!
GaNaDara serves Korean street food. Dishes are not fancy, but they’re overall very good and pretty feeling. The menu can be kind of hard to understand if you don’t speak Korean, like me. But, with time, I’m starting to learn the names of the dishes I like the most.
Last time I went there with a friend, we had a blast. As starters, we ordered Dak Balls ($5) and some Mandu ($3), fried pork dumplings. But I couldn’t help myself of asking for my favorite Korean appetizer: the Seafood Pajeon ($5), a fried pancake made from eggs, rice flour, shrimps, shellfish and veggies. So far, a lot of food!
As if that were not enough, then we shared the traditional Bibimbap ($9) and a Galbi ($9), that is basically a big plate of marinated beef short ribs with rice. By the end, I was amazed. In total, all that feast costed us less than $35 with taxes!
Services and Price
One thing I like about eating at small family business is that feeling of being among friends. At GaNaDara I felt that way. The staff is really attentive and charismatic. They always serve me with a smile.
As mentioned before, prices are super cheap! That’s the perfect place for students. And if you’re in a hurry, they do take out!
